Amber Valletta Covers British Vogue May 2017

Hey peeps! Happy new month. Welcome to the lovely month of May. I am not sure why April went so fast, but it seems like the year 2017 is moving at lightening speed, so we better get on with it.

The stunning model – Amber Valletta covers British Vogue for May 2017, and she looks great on it. She makes another appearance on the British Vogue cover; after her many previous covers. I remember seeing her on the cover of British Vogue December 1994, alongside Kate Moss and Nadia Auermann. She still looks as amazing as she looked on that cover.

On this cover, Amber is wearing a printed wrap dress by Bottega Veneta and her signature grin. She looks so stunning, she has a beautiful smile that has the power to light up a room.

 

 

Her outfit, makeup and hair are on point. The cover ticks all the boxes. But it looks very familiar. It looks like all the recent British Vogue, with the grey and orange, so I find it a little boring. I am hoping the next issue is a little different, so it stands out from the rest.

Also, the articles on the cover do not interest so me at all, so I won’t be reading this issue. I am late to the party with this issue anyway. April was incredibly busy, and life got in the way, so this post is kind of late. However, I will be looking out for June’s issue, and hoping the British Vogue team nails it!

In other news, I think Amber Valletta looks a lot like Cara Delevingne, I actually thought it was Cara in the cover for some time. I think they look so much alike. Do you agree?

What are your thoughts on this British Vogue Cover? Have you read this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and have an amazing week.

How Brows Became the Beauty Obsession of the Decade

I’ve noticed a lot of news and tutorials about how to groom your eyebrows. It’s interesting how so many women are growing extremely conscious of their eyebrows. Thank you Cara Delevingne. I’ve even read an article that women can spend an average of £200million a year in eyebrow grooming alone! Can you imagine that?
Now we have eyebrow transplants to add some hair to the scanty eyebrows. There’s also something called mircoblading which is a process that resembles tattooing hair; like strokes that resemble hair on your eyebrow. That’s only part of it! How about the pencils, colours, gels, brushes and treatments specially made for eyebrows? There are even many makeup artists who specialize in eyebrows only!
But what is with this craze for perfect” eyebrows? Why are women willing to spend so much to get their eyebrows right?

 

A Fashion Statement

I think it is because there are the new fashion statement. A show me your brows, and I tell you who you are sort of thread.

Brows Define the Face
Our eyebrows define our face, and can enhance our beauty when done properly. Eyebrows play a prominent role when it comes to enhancing your beauty. A flawless looking face will always be put off-balance if the eyebrows are not done well.
Brows Are A Reflection of the Current Fashion Trends
Eyebrows have evolved over time.  Each era has a unique set of eyebrows to match. For example, in the 20’s pencil thin eyebrows were considered popular. Currently, bolder eyebrows seem to be the hottest trend.
It is just like the same way everyone wants to make sure they stay up-to-date with the latest fashion trends when it comes to clothing items. Since eyebrows play a prominent role in our appearance, it’s only “logical” to stay in tuned with the current trends. And since no one wants to be left out, the obsession with eyebrows will continue as long as the thread continues.
Brows are a sign of femininity
One of the facial features that usually set us apart from men is the fine arch of our eyebrows. Maintaining your eyebrows is a way to accentuate your feminine side. Having bushy eyebrows (something usually associated with men) may make you feel/look less feminine.
It actually has an impact on the way people see you. Sometimes it defines your type of person. Some women have been criticized for the way they maintain their eyebrows, especially those with full eyebrows and those with very thin eyebrows.
Brows are a means of expression
You know how you instinctively raise your eyebrows when you’re surprised? Or how they come closer together in the centre when you’re angry?
Eyebrows can powerfully convey your emotions. For this reason, when we want to decode one’s facial expressions, we have the tendency to pay attention to their eyes/eyebrows.

I think the brow obsession will continue for at least another decade. I won’t say I am obsessed with my eyebrows, I would say I am very much in love with them and I like to see them well-groomed. What do you think? Are you obsessed with your eyebrows?

Cara Delevingne Covers British Vogue September 2016

Cara Delevingne On Vogue Image

 

The stylish Cara Delevingne is on the cover of British Vogue September 2016 issue and she looks good. I am loving the cover a lot. I like the fact that it is quite colourful with the blue jacket and red background. I love her pose, hair and makeup, but then it is Cara Delevinge so I am surprised. She nails everything she touches!

This issues promises to be a good read. The 23-year-old model gushes about her new-found love in her interview:

“I’m completely in love… Before, I didn’t know what love was – real love,” she told us of her relationship with American singer-songwriter Annie Clark (known by her stage name St Vincent). “I didn’t understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that’s for yourself or for the world or your partner.”

She sounds happy so I am happy for her. Love is a beautiful thing and everyone deserves to experience it.

Cara Delevingne also talks about her transition into Hollywood, and about the gender pay gap:

“I’m still learning. I act for love. I give it my all,” she revealed of her more recent pursuit. “I would probably still do it even if I wasn’t paid at all. But in terms of equal pay I need to be paid the same as the guy who has equal billing with me. Otherwise I won’t do it. Because if you accept less, you’re just letting everyone else down and continuing the cycle.”

I agree with her 100%. I find it bizarre that we still have this gender pay issue today. I mean it is 2016. I am not going to bore you guys with my feminist views, but we really should not have to deal with the same issues previous generations had to deal with.

 

Apart from Cara’s interview, I would also love to read ‘The big 7 trends you’ll want to wear’ and ‘Vogue’s guide to go-getting style’. Both articles sound like a good read.

Will you be reading this issue? What do you think of the cover?
